Countdown to Christmas: Day 4: Family Fun In December!

 Isaiah 40:1-4 - Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the Lord's hand double for all her sins. A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain.

Spend some time with your family this holiday season with these fun ideas!

1. Drink cocoa - sit down around the fire, or watch a movie together with a nice cup of hot chocolate. Enjoy each others company!

5. Bake cookies - make your favorite recipes together! I'll have my family's favorites posted so watch out for those!

6. Do a secret act of kindness/service - do this with your family or for your family, but be happy while doing so. Your attitude will change the way the kindness comes out. 

7. Make gingerbread houses - you can make a big one together, or make separate ones, either way, this is a fun way to go.

8. Create a snow fort - if it snows where you live, this is a must. Do it as a family and get creative.

9. Create a blanket fort - if it doesn't snow, still make a fort! Just do it with blankets instead!

10. Cut out paper snowflakes - this is a cool way to spice up your room/house, and it's something fun to do. Play some Christmas music and cut up some paper!

11. Go out and look at lights - my family does this every year. We drive around and go into different neighborhoods to look at their lights. We like to stop at Starbucks on our way 😏

Have a happy holiday!
